Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Barcelona

After enjoying your complimentary airport lounge access, fly out to Barcelona, Spain, where an included shared transfer will see you to your ship.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: D

Day 2
Porto Mahon

Established as the island's capital in 1722, when the British began their nearly 80-year occupation, Mahón still bears the stamp of its former rulers. The streets nearest the port are lined with four-story Georgian townhouses; the Mahónese drink gin and admire Chippendale furniture; English is widely spoken. The city is quiet for much of the year, but between June and September the waterfront pubs and restaurants swell with foreigners.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 3
Cagliari (Sardinia)

The serene sea approach to Cagliari is an exquisitely beautiful way to first lay eyes on the city’s mesmerising interplay of colour, spires and domed churches. Sat on Sardinia’s south coast, Cagliari is the island’s largest city, and a sun-blessed escape of beaches, architecture and Mediterranean food – where stress evaporates on contact. That first sight of Cagliari’s mosaic of architecture reveals much about the island’s history, and is a living document of the civilisations and influences that have passed through. Combining Byzantine churches with crumbling Roman ruins and Pisan towers, it’s an elegant, beguiling place to explore. Usher in the morning with a short, sharp espresso hit, before wandering along to San Benedetto market’s bustle, crammed full of overflowing heaps of local produce.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 4
Trapani (Sicily)

Trapani, the most important town on Sicily’s west coast, lies below the headland of Mount Erice and offers stunning views of the Egadi Islands on a clear day. Trapani’s Old District occupies a scimitarshaped promontory between the open sea on the north and the salt marshes to the south. The ancient industry of extracting salt from the marshes has recently been revived, and it is documented in the Museo delle Saline. In addition to the salt marshes,Trapani’s other interesting environs include the beautiful little hill town of Erice, the promontory of Capo San Vito stretching north beyond the splendid headland of Monte Cofano, the lovely island of Motya and the town of Marsala.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 5
Giardini Naxos (Sicily)

The medieval cliff-hanging town of Taormina's natural beauty is still hard to dispute. The view of the sea and Mt. Etna from its jagged cactus-covered cliffs is as close to perfection as a panorama can get—especially on clear days, when the snowcapped volcano's white puffs of smoke rise against the blue sky.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Days 6-7
Valletta, Malta

Malta's capital, the minicity of Valletta, has ornate palaces and museums protected by massive fortifications of honey-color limestone. Houses along the narrow streets have overhanging wooden balconies for people-watching from indoors

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 8
At Sea

Relax on board the ship making use of the pool deck, the spa facilities or simply find a quiet corner to relax with a good book.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 9
Nafplion, Greece

Oraia (beautiful) is the word Greeks use to describe Nafplion. The town's old section, on a peninsula jutting into the gulf of Argos, mixes Greek, Venetian, and Turkish architecture; narrow streets, often just broad flights of stone stairs, climb the slopes beneath the walls of Acronafplia. Tree-shaded plazas surround neoclassic buildings. The Palamidi fortress—an elegant display of Venetian might from the early 1700s—guards the town.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 10
Mykonos Island

Put firmly on the map by Jackie O in the 1960s, Mykonos town—called Hora by the locals—remains the Saint-Tropez of the Greek islands. The scenery is memorable, with its whitewashed streets, Little Venice, the Kato Myli ridge of windmills, and Kastro, the town's medieval quarter.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 11
Kusadasi, Turkey

Whilst the busy resort town of Kusadasi offers much in the way of shopping and dining – not to mention a flourishing beach life scene, the real jewel here is Ephesus and the stunning ruined city that really take centre stage. With only 20% of the classical ruins having been excavated, this archaeological wonder has already gained the status as Europe’s most complete classical metropolis. And a metropolis it really is; built in the 10th century BC this UNESCO World Heritage site is nothing short of spectacular.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 12
Santorini, Greece

Undoubtedly the most extraordinary island in the Aegean, crescent-shape Santorini remains a mandatory stop on the Cycladic tourist route—even if it's necessary to enjoy the sensational sunsets from Ia, the fascinating excavations, and the dazzling white towns.

Stay: Silver Spirit (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 13
Athens (Piraeus)

Your cruise ends in Athens, where an included transfer will see you to the airport for your included flight, arriving the same day.

Meals: B
